Industrial Archaeology : Principles and Practice, Paperback / softback Book

Industrial Archaeology : Principles and Practice Paperback / softback

Description

Industrial Archaeology uses the techniques of mainstream archaeological excavation, analysis and interpretation to present an enlightening picture of industrial society. Technology and heritage have, until recently, been the focal points of study in industrialization.

Industrial Archaeology sets out a coherent methodology for the discipline which expands on and extends beyond the purely functional analysis of industrial landscapes, structures and artefacts to a broader consideration of their cultural meaning and value.

The authors examine, for example, the social context of industrialization, including the effect of new means of production on working patterns, diet and health.
